Orion buffers solutions and standards

Manufactured with quality in mind

Using high-quality solutions to calibrate and maintain your sensors is the best way to ensure your data is both accurate and reproducible. When choosing buffers and solutions for pH measurement, pay attention to the quality of the water and chemicals used. Use USP grade water whenever possible.

Thermo Scientific Orion buffers and solutions are manufactured with USP grade purified water and are traceable to NIST certified standards. They undergo rigorous quality testing throughout the process to prevent contamination before and after bottling. 

Avoid using low-quality, reconstituted, or expired buffers. These can lead to measurement errors, which require lengthy troubleshooting, or may go unnoticed. Our bottles of buffers have a safety seal to eliminate leaking during shipment and also as a tamper-proof measure.
